Fix screen resolution issue zBook (Fedora 20)

I am using HPZBook workstation. Happily installed Fedora 20 in it. I restarted the system only to see a screen resolution problem. Basically my screen resolution was not detected by the nouveau. Have to install NVIDIA drivers.

Upon restart I saw something similar to,

<snip>

So I used the "liveusb" to get in to my terminal and update the driver.

 

$ lspci | grep VGA

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK106GLM [Quadro K2100M] (rev a1)

Add the rpmfusion repo to the local yum repo

$ sudo yum localinstall –nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

 

Search for the nvidia related packages

$ yum search nvidia

 

Install the following packages

$ sudo yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.x86_64

$ sudo yum install akmod-nvidia.x86_64

 

Reboot and enjoy !!!
